I enjoyed the course and learned a lot. Thank you. Money well spent.

Mark Hanlon, Partner, Hexham Dental Clinic

I just wanted to let you know that your courses on this subject are excellent, informative, easy to follow and offer excellent value for money. Also it provided me with 3 hours of CPD sitting on my armchair! No need to travel and sit through a 3 hour seminar...Fantastic. They are ideal for training on this subject for PCT, CQC and general awareness requirements. I highly recommend them for Dentists, DCPs , Registered Managers and Receptionists.

Dr Vinai Patel, Stratford Dental

It was easy and quick to register and start the course. Very good.

Roya Heidari Tari, Bideford Dental Practice

I found the course very easy to understand. As I have followed the topics I have printed off the linked policies and I will keep them all together and make sure all staff know where to find them. The course has given me all the tools needed to confidently take on the SDP role. I have learnt so much more than I was aware of previously. I would highly recommend this course to all dental practices.

Safeguarding Levels

The BDA recommend that all staff are trained to at least level 1, which can be achieved by taking our Introduction to Adult/Child Protection course.  Clinical staff such as dentists, hygienists, dental nurses etc also require level 2 training, by taking our Further Adult/Child Protection course, in addition to our Introduction to Adult/Child Protection course. 

Specialist clinical staff, for example paediatric dentists, will require higher level face-to-face safeguarding training but this is not required for most dental practices.
